The desi Tarzan has just been pushed out by our very desi RAW agent John Abraham starrer RAW (an acronym for Romeo Akbar Walter).
RAW was to be pitched with the absurd-looking jungle adventure Junglee (Vidyut Jamwal on a stunt safari). But the producers of Junglee have now preponed their release by a week to avoid a clash with RAW.
The decision seems fairly prudent when seen in the light of the credibility that RAW leading man John Abraham has acquired as an actor since Parmanu last year. “John and a film about national security are a solid box-office bet. To pitch an out-and-out trivial adventure like Junglee against a heavyweight theme like RAW is suicidal. The Junglee producers have rightly moved back by a week,” says a trade source.
Though how wise it is to pitch your film against Salman Khan is debatable. Junglee now faces competition from the Salman Khan produced The Notebook introducing the legendary Nutan’s granddaughter Pranutan Bahl.
The release dates of the films now are as follows:
Junglee – Preponed to May 29 (it was earlier supposed to release on April 5).
Notebook – May 29.
RAW - April 5.
